Abstract

We describe the advertisement calls of Dendropsophus branneri, Phyllodytes melanomystax, and Scinax agilis, and present new information on the advertisement call of Scinax auratus. We also describe the territorial call of P. melanomystax. We provide the power spectrums, audiospectrograms, and waveforms of all calls. Vocalizations were recorded in the Municipalities of Camaçari, Elísio Medrado, Feira de Santana, and Mata de São João, State of Bahia, Brazil. Based on the advertisement call characteristics of these species, we discuss some aspects related to their taxonomy.
